GREAT DOCUMENTS IN U.S. HISTORY

GREAT DOCUMENTS IN U.S. HISTORY

Forty texts (20 in each volume) acquaint students with the process of primary source analysis while presenting significant slices of American history. Obvious choices such as the Declaration of Independence, the Gettysburg Address, and Wilson's Fourteen Points are joined by less-covered selections, including Dix's speech on conditions for the mentally ill, Chinese exclusion policy, and the censure of Joe McCarthy. Each lesson provides a short essay on a specific document's historical context; its importance; the full or excerpted text; necessary vocabulary; comprehension, critical thinking, and essay questions; and writing prompts for making connections and relating the past to students' lives. Grades 9–12. Answer keys. 8" x 11". J. Weston Walch. 128 pages each. ©2006.
